Mark Fast for Danier

Thursday, September 29, 2011

 

Today I had to the opportunity to attend the Winnipeg launch of Mark Fast for Danier at Polo Park Shopping Centre

Mark Fast grew up in the countryside outside the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Now Mark Fast is a London, UK-based Canadian designer known for his amazing designer knitwear and awesome catwalk shows. He designs his knits by hand on a domestic sewing machine and so when I heard he teamed up with Danier for Fall 2011 I knew the collection would be spectacular!

This designer collection consists of 7 pieces which were inspired by Mark Fast's Fall/Winter 2011 London Fashion Week runway show. I normally love color but this collection is great just the way it is in scrumptious black lamb leather.

As soon as I got into the store I immediately had to try on the pieces.  The first piece I was drawn to was the lamb leather overalls! Yes, overalls! They are amazing and so different from what is normally seen at Danier.  I am seen here modelling them with a wool/leather blazer also currently available at Danier. The overalls fit just perfect and I love crossing the straps in the back for some added detail.  The crop length works even on me and I am on the shorter size at 5'2". 

 

 

 

 

From the collection I also really loved the long sleeve lamb leather shirt with lacing detail down the entire length of the sleeves. I find sometimes leather pieces are quite hard to get yourself into but this top had a very long zip in the back making the top easy to put on.  The top fits quite snug but the stretch lining makes it easy to move around in without feeling restrictive.

This collection also has a gorgeous lamb leather dress with lacing around the waist, a lamb leather jacket with buckles, a lamb leather skirt with side lace up detail, lamb leather pants and a lamb leather coat with fur lining. 

 

 

Mark Fast for Danier gift bag chocolate treatThe launch at Polo Park Shopping Centre also gave out amazing Danier gift bags with one of the items being this very cool chocolate treat with the Mark Fast for Danier logo.

 

 

Please go check out the Mark Fast collection at select Danier stores.

 

 

And Yes, for anyone out there wondering, you will definitely see me rockin' those fabulous lamb leather overalls this fall!
